Lawyers Blog...Can Kids be sentenced to LIFE IN PRISON?

http://blogs.lawyers.com/2013/05/kids-sentenced-to-life-in-prison/

A must read, a discussion of the states and how they are handing the juvenile issue sentencing since the supreme court ruling.

"Children" are so easily influenced, vulnerable, they are their environment, surroundings, and the world in which they live. They "learn" from others, good or bad, those caught up in the "system", did NOT get to where they are today, ALL BY THEMSELVES.  They are exposed, daily, to such a large variety of things/items, to go down the wrong path, it is the duty of "adults" to discipline/guide them/help them to become a productive member of society. Justice must be tempered with compassion and mercy, NOT contribute to their destruction and loss of their very lives.
